Heating FAQ


How often should I have my heating equipment serviced?

Heating equipment should be serviced once a year. At MacGregor we recommend having your heating system checked in the fall. That way you‘ll be ready for anything that the season has to throw at you!  

How important is it to change my filter?

A clean filter allows good airflow that is critical to the efficient operation of any heating and air conditioning system. A clean, high efficient air filter will also protect the system from the harmful effect of dirt buildup on the vital components of the air handler or furnace. A high quality air filtration system also provides for cleaner air in your home and ensures a higher level of comfort for you and your family.

My furnace needs to be replaced but my A/C is OK.  Now what?

The highly skilled technicians at MacGregor can replace the old furnace and seamlessly marry the new furnace with your existing A/C unit.  Some companies say they can do this kind of detailed installation but the result is less than satisfactory.  A MacGregor HVAC specialist can help you pick the right system for your home and fill you in on all the details of a quality installation that is guaranteed 100%.

What size furnace do I really need for my home?

A properly sized system is very important.  A system that is too big for your home will heat your house quickly, but you probably won’t feel as comfortable as you wish. A system that is too small never can keep up and will never cycle off.  This greatly increases your energy bills and substantially reduces the life of your system.

A properly sized system isn't just based on square feet of your home. Many factors go into determining the size of the system including thickness of the walls, number and size of windows, thickness of insulation, basement and attic use, house orientation, and many other details.  A MacGregor comfort specialist will take detailed measurements of your home and scientifically determine the correct sized system.  We will fit your home with the most efficient system for years of comfort and reliability.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying...

  • "John followed up to a previous visit. He promised to service and flush our water heater. For this follow up visit, he arrived on time and quickly went to work. He not only flushed the water heater but also replaced the elements that were in bad shape. John was professional and extremely responsive and did an excellent job! " Read More
